Críticas:


'A must-read for any company, regardless of its place on the green spectrum. The Green Workplace includes great information for companies just beginning to green their offices or for those who are further along in the process. From alternative work options to the greening of actual buildings and spaces, The Green Workplace has it all!' - Alicia R. Martin, Sustainability Manager, Sprint

  'Leigh surfaces the many challenges businesses may face in their quest to 'go green.' Her passion for the environment comes through with each turn of the page. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to better understand environmental issues in the workplace, and how we can begin replacing destructive behaviors with practices that will ensure future generations enjoy the same pleasures we experience today.' - Randy Knox III, Sr. Director of Global Workplace Solutions, Adobe Systems Incorporated   'This book is a good compilation of the issues facing corporations today. Fortunately, there are also examples of solutions that have been implemented. Ms. Stringer recognizes that there is no silver bullet solution, but does a good job of highlighting some of the silver buckshot that can help businesses improve their ecological footprint. We must recognize the challenges and change our behavior in a controlled manner before it becomes imposed on us in a harsh manner. The recent financial crises should have taught us this lesson - there is no bailout planet available for our ecosystem.' - Paul Westbrook, Sustainable Development Manager, Texas Instruments  

'This is one of the most useful books I have ever read - Leigh Stringer has taken on 'green' in the most holistic of ways. To inform, educate and inspire while at the same time reeling off fact and after fact, and idea after idea, is no mean achievement, but that she did so in a way that is eminently readable is a wonderful bonus. Stringer's passion and enthusiasm for the subject is infectious; no contemporary business organization should be without this book.' - Chris Hood, Program Manager, the HP Workplace
 
'Leigh Stringer hits the nail squarely on the head with The Green Workplace. Anyone designing a green building without full consideration of the people effect is missing the boat. Stringer shows how you can have a fully green building, highly energy-efficient, with a healthy and productive workforce, if we're willing to rethink our assumptions and current practices. It's never 'either/or' but always 'both/and' that we need to consider in designing and operating our workplaces.' - Jerry Yudelson, author of The Green Building Revolution
 
'From the newest cutting-edge green technologies to the small lifestyle changes that can make a big difference, The Green Workplace is an illuminating, accessible, and comprehensive guide that reveals how managers at every level across a wide variety of industries can make their offices and practices more sustainable, efficient, and well-suited to our complex, ever-changing world of business.' - Curtis Ravenel, Global Head, Sustainability Initiatives, Bloomberg, L.P.
  'The Green Workplace is a smartly articulated and comprehensive strategy to transform the way you do business. Stringer attacks this critical challenge in the most intelligent way: by understanding how to use design thinking to change behavior. Recommended for anyone who wants to make change at work.' - Valerie Casey, Founder and Executive Director, The Designers Accord

Reseña del editor:

As 21st-century companies realize they'll need to be green to compete, sustainable ideas are spreading like wildfire throughout all fields of modern business. In The Green Workplace, Leigh Stringer, an expert on sustainable workplace design and strategy, shows companies on the cusp of radically transforming their practices how to bring together diverse teams and establish new organizational governance for creative problem-solving in greening their workplace. Her hands-on green strategies are based on concrete and cost-effective changes such as:
- working from home - ways to cut commuting costs
- video conferencing to cut down on travel 
- increasing access to natural light to save energy
- and more.
Stringer explains how managers can implement these changes smoothly and efficiently. In solving key problems, she shows companies how a green business reduces costs, increases productivity, improves recruiting and retention, and increases shareholder value, in addition to benefiting the environment.
